Researchers may have discovered what's responsible for discrepant findings between dozens of fundamental studies of the biology of aging. A drug commonly used in research with C. elegans worms, they report, has had unanticipated effects on lifespan.

Scientists are getting closer to solving the problem of antibiotic resistance. New research reveals the mechanism by which drug-resistant bacterial cells maintain a defensive barrier. The findings pave the way for a new wave of drugs that kill superbugs by bringing down their defensive walls rather…

A medication approved to treat various respiratory diseases and that has demonstrated neuroprotective effects in preclinical studies is the focus of a new clinical trial for Parkinson's disease.

Children often fidget or move when they are trying to solve a problem, and that movement may have a positive effect on children with ADHD, new research confirms.

The more expensive an item, the more likely it is to be targeted by thieves and stolen, a has revealed. The findings also show that the rise in the theft of goods such as mobile phones, bicycles, jewellery and the decline in audio equipment, TVs and DVDs taken from properties in London is closely…

Researchers examined medical home trends in children's primary care from 2003 to 2012 and found that while this specific healthcare model has improved children's primary care overall, certain aspects of children's patient care experience have worsened. Moreover, upon analyzing various at-risk…

Researchers have opened the door to finding a new class of cancer-causing genetic variations. Using a combination of pre-existing electronic databases and their own experiments with cancerous and healthy cells, researchers linked stomach (gastric) and prostate cancer to a specific type of DNA…

New research article embraces the status of the experimental situation and touches obstacles that still hinder the applications of single molecules in the cellular environment.

For the first time, researchers have shown that T-cell leukemia cells use a particular cycle, called the TCA or Kreb cycle, to support their growth and survival.

While the sexual abuse of children is currently an issue at the forefront of public life, concern has focused on the protection of children and the identification of perpetrators. However, a new study hopes to refocus attention on what can be done to help the victims of childhood sexual abuse.

A new study sheds light on one of the biological mechanisms involved in the evolution of species: The precise conservation of the dynamics of gene expression in embryonic regulatory circuits plays a key role in maintaining morphological similarity between similar species.

A new method of chemically modifying ketones has been developed in a way that ensures that optically active cyanohydrins are obtained, enabling efficient production of pharmaceutical precursors at a high yield and with good selectivity.

Genome sequencing has been instrumental in improving knowledge of human diseases, by allowing scientists to understand their underlying biological mechanisms. New software called SIFT 4G (SIFT for Genomes) can lead to faster genome analysis, report scientists.

Parents who do not get their children flu shots rate flu vaccine less favorably than other childhood vaccines, a national poll finds. Fifty-nine percent of parents whose child did not receive the flu vaccine this season say it is less important than other childhood vaccines -- compared to only 14…

Governments and researchers need to pay greater attention to the spread of antimicrobial resistance – or so-called superbugs – in wildlife and the natural environment, according to a new study.

Ordinary sugar could become a contrast agent of the future for use in magnetic resonance tomography examinations of tumors, as malignant tumors show higher sugar consumption than surrounding tissue, report scientists.

Complexity theory is needed for a better understanding and management of financial-economic crises, according to a new article. The article, which is authored by an interdisciplinary group of scientists from the fields of economics and banking, ecology, epidemiology, physics, computer science and…

A novel technique that makes it possible to monitor insulin resistance in a non-invasive manner over time in mice has been developed by diabetes researchers. The new method can be used to assess insulin resistance during progression and intervention of metabolic diseases.

With the recent rise in popularity of naturally-derived supplements to maintain a healthy body, there has been a great deal of attention toward development of the so-called "brain foods", which can enhance brain function. Of particular importance is the natural red pigment astaxanthin (ASX)…

Feeding is essential for survival. Senses such as smell or sight can help guide us to good food sources, but the final decision to eat or reject a potential food is controlled by taste. Scientists have examined the anatomy of the taste-sensing neurons to reveal their role in the stages of feeding.

The number of families in which both parents work is increasing. But who looks after the children when the nursery school is closed? Female child minders and surrogate grandmas are very popular, but is childcare an appealing activity for men too? New research is examining the phenomenon of…

Does our brain perceive objects initially as a conglomeration of shapes, colours and patterns or does it instantly recognise the entire structure? An article provides the answer.

Patients with no schooling benefit least from blood thinning medications, reveals a recent survey. The poll of more than 1,100 patients with atrial fibrillation found those with no schooling missed treatment targets more often, were less aware of bleeding risks, and did not know they could continue…

People who feel that their financial outlook is shaky may actually experience more physical pain than those who feel financially secure, according to new research. The findings indicate that the link may be driven, at least in part, by feeling a lack of control over one's life.

A portable and low-cost diagnostic device has been developed. This microfluidic tool, which has been tested with Ebola, requires no bulky equipment, and is thus ideally suited for use in remote regions.
